American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Clinical Congress 2021

While encouraged by recent measures to reduce the incidence of COVID-19, we also recognize that this positive trajectory may not yet be a predictable one. Therefore, this year’s American College of Surgeons (ACS) Clinical Congress will be a VIRTUAL event. Join us October 23–27 for Clinical Congress 2021. This virtual event offers important surgical education opportunities for medical professionals across all specialties and career stages.

Building on the success of last year’s first virtual Congress, we are confident we can again offer a best-in-class educational event for all attendees, presenters, and exhibitors. The program will focus on the latest advances in surgical science, practice, and education, all celebrated under this year’s theme, “Resilience in the Pursuit of Excellence.”

Clinical Congress 2021 offers the opportunity to earn more than 200 Continuing Medical Education Credits until February 1, 2022. Some of these credits have been designated as potentially meeting state-specific CME requirements (Credit to Address Regulatory Mandates). American College of Surgeons Accreditation/Verification Program participants can find CME opportunities in the relevant content areas.
